European Vacation – Frauenfeld to Innesbrook

The morning started off being foggy, but it wasn’t long before the fog disappeared and the sun was shining.  🙂   We entered and exited Liechtenstein before we knew it and were suddenly in Austria.  We must have stopped in Liechtenstein for at least a few minutes because we met some people from Winnipeg.  I don’t know anything about these people – just that we met them.  We finally saw some mountains today.

I’m sure we saw mountains in  Switzerland, but I don’t mention where we did finally see them.   We drove over a mountain.  I remember wondering Libby would be able to make it all the way up because it was very steep and took us quite awhile to climb to the top.  I always thought this mountain was in Switzerland, but my diary makes it sound like Austria.  My pictures are also marked Austria.

The cattle roamed free up on the mountains, so we were listening for bells each time we rounded a turn, so we would know if any were on the road.

I took a couple of pictures at the top of the mountain, just before we went into the tunnel and started back down again.

There is just a little bit of snow way up there, but the sun was shining and it was a beautiful day.

We found a campsite at Innesbrook that had a beautiful view.  I showed a picture of part of the view in yesterday’s blog with houses right up to the top and looking the other way was a huge snow covered peak.  There is a hotel right outside the campground and we walked over there for supper tonight.  There was apparently a dance there tonight and some guy asked me to to there with him.  If there had been three of him, we probably would have gone, but this seems to be the only time we didn’t meet enough guys.  We hoped it wouldn’t be too noisy for us to sleep.

Today was June 21, 1975 and we traveled 240 km.
